Your most useless baby item.

What was one (or more) item/s you received for your baby that you had no use for, or baby didn't like it?

For my first daughter it was the crib, I co-sleep. Also changing table.

For my second daughter, bouncy chair. She preferred to be held 24/7 (unless in a swing), so I basically got no use out of it.

  • Gallons upon gallons of baby oil.

    I wondered if infants were supposed to tan or something, or they expected all my jewelery to suddenly tangle.

  • Clothes for the wrong season. I feel they were so wasted when it was the dead of summer and someone gave her winter clothes. At least the summer clothes I can throw some tights on underneath and a long-sleeved onesie, but come on!

  • Diaper Genie
    Baby towels-I ended up using the regular ones more b/c they were bigger and thicker.

  • This sling thing with ties that are like 12 feet long. i don't even know how to put it on. Besides, I heard there have been injuries and death caused by these.

  • Diaper Genie and a wipes warmer. Never really used either. I know I wouldn't have used a changing table either, but we didn't have enough room back then anyway so we didn't buy one.
